Tax Refund Instructions

In order to issue a refund check for the overpayment of taxes, we require the information listed below:
  1. A written refund request with your signature (download form in pdf format – per Connecticut State Statue)
  2. Copies of your validated receipt(s) or a copy of the front and back of your cancelled check(s) for all payments.
  3. If paid by a second party such as an attorney, bank, or mortgage company, a letter on their official letterhead verifying that you are to receive a refund. (Please note that it is common for one installment of a real estate tax bill to be paid twice, especially if ownership of the property has changed or the mortgage has been refinanced.) We require this letter to avoid duplicate refund requests and real estate tax refunds are not issued until the full tax for the year has been paid creating an overpayment.
  4. Please complete and return the form and all materials if you are to receive the refund. A refund check will be mailed within 6-8 weeks after receipt of all required documentation.
Please be advised that no refund will be processed unless all appropriate steps outlined above have been completed.

Sincerely,

Ann M Scacco, CCMC Tax Collector
Paula M Usher, CCMC, Assistant Tax Collector
Patricia Delaney, CCMC Tax Clerk
